Since Ive always had more than just 1 computer at my place when DSL first arrived into this country although everyone i knew chose the normal low-cost ADSL modems i opted for the more powerful and expensive modem/router combination so i could give access to all my systems without much fuss. Well to this day Ive never stopped using modem/router models (the Netgear i have now is the 7th in line) but something strange has happened and so for the past 2 years for unknown reasons (to me at least) all the well-known network solutions companies out there have shifted their focus towards the design and manufacture of standalone router models. Of course as you can all understand i am not too fond of that cause i can`t upgrade my modem/router with a newer model but since the latest 802.11ac (AC1750) Wi-Fi protocol has been introduced in routers we had to take a closer look and the TEW-812DRU AC1750 Dual Band Wireless Router by TRENDnet was the first to arrive on our doorstep."
